Rest for my 5K and my sick wife

  • First, if you haven't entered the giveaway for a $50 Road Runner Sports gift card then go enter! Just like they say for Powerball give me your money, suckers! you can't win if you don't play!!
  • My wife is sick. She isn't "I'm sorta tired I'm not going to go to work" sick, she is "I'm planning on sleeping all day and coughing/sneezing all night" sick. So, you know what that means!?! Frosting and ice cream for dinner! (No need for cake, too many healthy ingredients....eggs? flour?...boo)
  • I postponed my run that was scheduled for this morning until tomorrow when I am running a 5K. I'll plan on doing a mile warm up, the 3 miles of the race, and then a mile cool down. Then, I may just have to finish it off with some beer curls.
  • The race tomorrow should be interesting. The course has a lot of tight turns and I am planning on running it pretty hard. If that doesn't sound like a broken-ankle-good time I don't know what does. I'll probably go out at around a 6:20ish pace and hold on for as long as I can. I really want to push it hard to test my fitness, but not TOO hard. You know?
  • Finally, even though Arizona residents are a bit crazy with their guns sometimes (e.g. you can bring a non-concealed gun into a bar....IN TO A BAR!!) I have to think that Texas takes the cake. Exhibit A: The governor of Texas trail runs while carrying a loaded 38 special. Not only that, but the other day he shot a coyote that was attacking his dog. (For the record, I would have done the same thing) All I can say is that I hope that his holster was sweat wicking...He sure would chafe if it was just tucked into his gym shorts.

I hope the wife feels better soon! You better keep a safe distance so you're not laid up for the 5k!!!

1) good luck on the 5k... make sure you run the tangents!

2)Remind me to never click on a link from your website again... I think I got the image of poopy-pants-McGee permanently seared into my brain!

Psyche said...

Yes, your blog really does need to come with a image warning: "Click here for images that won't leave your brain. EVER."

Good luck tomorrow!

I love that strategy - 6:20 and hold on! Man, I need some of that mojo...

Jill said...

Hope your wife feels better soon...and white flour is really bad for you so eating cake batter is a score here, too! Good luck with the race this weekend!!!

HILARIOUS COMMENT! Thanks!

Hope the wifey feels better, and run your heart out on the 5k that's soon to come, I love those, you can put everything you've got into those and then bam, its done!

Lisa said...

Sorry for your wife, that really sucks! Hopefully it's more allergies and not contageous! Good luck with the 5k!

Pam said...

LMFAO @ that photo. I've seen it before, but that one just never gets old.

Julie said...

Good luck to you Adam!! Tell you wife that I am sending her get well wishes:) Take care!

I hope you saved the frosting and ice cream for tomorrow night's dinner - after your 5K.

Good luck with the pacing.

Don't mess with Texas.

Sounds like you're in for a great race tomorrow - pacing seems spot on. You'll be able to race the whole thing, run a cool down mile, and be back at the finish by the time Jeff and I are rolling through! (ie. you're fast)

Oh wow. It's been far too long since I've eaten frosting from the canister! Haha.

Hope your wife feels better and you don't catch what she has! Good luck on your 5k. It seems like your mileage/endurance has come right back.

Enjoy your day off, and good luck on your race tomorrow! (Super fast pace, btw!) Hope your wife is feeling better soon! Being sick in the spring stinks. Ice cream and frosting, no cake hmm... sounds like something my husband would eat the night before a race!

Hope your wife feels better soon! Might be time to load up on the antibiotics. It took me a couple courses to shake my cold/flu/grunge/whatever the hell it was.

Have fun on your 5K this weekend!

Oh yeah. I'm cheating in San Diego though. I think I only have toput seven miles or so in, and then I get to *say* I finished...

Frosting and ice cream are the perfect pre-race foods. Right? right?!?
